BLIND TALENT is a heartfelt dramedy about coming to grips with challenging conformity and social hierarchy to find the beauty in the struggle to achieve your dreams. The story centers on Adrian (Kenny Lee), an actor on the cusp of stardom who has been an employee for the least-reputable studio in Hollywood. Now at the end of a five-year player contract, his recent diagnosis of macular degeneration threatens to abruptly end his budding career. In an attempt to keep his job, Adrian turns to his Aunt Kay (Sheila Walker), a former manager in her own right, and the two work out a day-to-day routine and system to maintain normal appearances. But as Adrian begins to lose more and more of his sight, he must be honest with those around him, and ultimately, himself, proving there is no blind lucka?? only blind talent.
